Kimani and Greencastle

YarnCon was great! I also had a good visit with my daughter Meredith and her family before heading back to Nashville. I always try to fit in a couple days to see them whenever I am in Chicago, since they are less than an hour east of there.

It’s a bit tricky to get photos of these two busy babies but I managed a couple halfway decent ones. LOL!

So after I got home I finished the Kimani shawl I had been working on and got it blocked yesterday, just in time for The Fiber Event. I am leaving in the morning for that and will be driving home Easter Sunday.

Before I get to the final glamour shot of Kimani, here’s how much yarn was left after the bind off. Yep 6 grams. Pretty close but at least I used most of the two skeins right?

Next to the little ball is the yarn for my new project. It’s a DK weight design by Dee O’Keefe called Debussy. It’s one of my favorite shapes to make lately, a tip to tip triangle. I am using my Classic Merino DK in Sea Oat.

Finally here’s the finished shawl and I am very pleased with it. I am going to close for now to help Jerry in the shop for a bit before we head out for a concert tonight. Never a dull moment!

That was quick


Not long after I posted yesterday’s entry Cassie bound off her Kimani. I will endeavor to get it blocked today and post the amazing transformation soon after. It is both my favorite part and the least enjoyable to perform. I don’t Iike the part of threading the wires because it is tedious but it is more than worth the effort. Isn’t that just so true to life though?

Oh, I also wanted to mention that I just reached a small milestone on my little blog this week. I just passed my three year anniversary and my two hundredth post. Thanks for sticking with me for however long you have been following me here. I greatly appreciate each and every of you who visit me here. (HUG)
